Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough raise in a warm spot for 1 hour till double in size. Divide dough into 8 equal parts. Roll dough into 8"-10" ropes. Wrap one rope around each hot dog and pinch to seal.


    10 minutes before the dough is finished rising, bring 12 cups of water to a boil in a large pot, once water is boiling add 2 TB of baking soda. Submerge each dough wrapped hot dog in water bath for 30 seconds (use a timer and be careful not to go too long or too short a time). remove and place on parchment lined baking sheet.

  1. This is the kids version created so they can do it all by themselves.

    Have the kids mix all the pudding cups and 1/2 container of cool whip in a bowl until completely combined. Divide the pudding mixture between 3 clay pots. Top each pot with crushed oreos. Stick gummy worms on top to make it look like they are living in the dirt. Stick a silk flower or some fresh mint leaves in the pot to make it look real. Kid's love to make believe and it is always fun to eat dirt!
